FREQUENTLY I hear that staying on track and making healthy choices consistently is just to overwhelming due to our crazy schedules. Somehow, crazy has become the new normal and this often leads to lowering our personal standards. Now that is crazy! Daily workouts and healthy eating can be quite challenging to fit into a busy schedule. Often, this causes us to throw our hands up [...]

Autumn has arrived, the leaves have changed color and  the hustle and bustle of the holidays is here.  If you're anything like me, this last part of the year flies by in a wink.

The Benefits of Eating and Harvesting Seasonal Foods

2018-08-15T08:05:14+00:00Healthy Living, Tips|

Both health experts and chefs agree that it's best to eat the foods that are "seasonally" available, rather than seeking out frozen foods from other seasons. Ideally, the healthiest, and most cost-effective diets are rich in produce that are grown in the same month that you eat them. This means that you would eat squash throughout the fall and summer, and switch to leeks and [...]

3 Tips for Healthy Snacking

2018-08-15T08:05:23+00:00Alkaline, Healthy Living, Snacks, Tips|

There’s a fine line between waiting too long between meals and snacking all day to curb your hunger. Waiting too long can cause you to overeat during your mealtimes because you’re ravenous – and grazing all day can lead to mindless or habitual eating that could cause overeating, especially when you’re still eating full meals at meal times. The goal is to figure out your [...]

Different Types of Cravings

2018-08-15T08:05:23+00:00Cancer Prevention, Tips|

Cravings are universal. We can all relate to what it feels like to be able to think of nothing other than a frosted doughnut or a bowl of ice-cream – and the feeling like we can’t possibly go on without it. We’ve all been there, right? The flip side of this situation, though, is that there is far more going on inside of us than [...]
